When you think back to your childhood, what do you remember? Is it that one Saturday when you sat in the living room and watched reruns all day? Or is it something that happened outside? Maybe the first time you caught a fish? What about that time when you came home so muddy that your mom had to spray you off with the hose before she even let you into the garage? Remember that tree you used to sit under? How about that one snowman that didn’t melt for two whole months?
